Meghan Markle Reportedly Revealed the Sex of Her Baby at Lavish US Baby Shower
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry may have let slip the sex of the new royal baby. Of course, there'll be no real confirmation until the big day.
The royal couple's baby has been a hot topic ever since the family announced the pregnancy in October last year. That day, speculation about whether it would be a boy or a girl also began.
According to US Weekly, inside sources have now given us stronger reason to expect none other than a boy from the pair. Of course, it's not much more than our 50 percent possibility of being right.

Still, the unknown source claimed that the Duchess of Sussex told friends on February 20 that she would be having a boy. Blue wrapping was spotted on one of the gift bags though taken to the Mark Hotel for a baby shower.
It was a surprise to learn that the couple might know the baby's sex in the first place. Add on to it the claim that it's a boy, and you've got royal fans going crazy.
However, there's a contradiction in that the decorations at the dessert spread of the shower were allegedly quite pink. No blue was sighted on the video clip that got out.

Up till now, Harry and Markle have been leaning towards a female baby. Back in October, Harry agreed with an event attendee who said they hoped it was a girl.
Around the same time, Harry added that "everyone is predicting it's going to be a girl." The soon-to-be father can expect to learn the truth by end of April or early May if he doesn't already.
Markle will likely be giving birth in the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital as Kate Middleton did. The baby's royal title will a bit complicated but a he would be an earl and a she would be a lady.
The seventh in line to the throne led his or her mother to get a tattoo earlier this week while visiting Morocco. The Duchess visited Asni for an event honoring the founder of Morocco's NGO Education For All, Michael McHugo.
There, she received a Henna flower tattoo on her right hand from a 17-year-old female student named Samira Ouaadi. The traditional tattoo is meant to celebrate the health of both mother and child.
We're in strong agreement with such well-wishes. First and foremost, we hope the baby and the Duchess remain healthy throughout the remainder of her pregnancy. Secondly, we hope it's a girl.
